Just wanted to say you can use 8 oz package of FF cream cheese in place of 1 cup of the cottage cheese, Fage greek yogurt in place of sour cream, and 3/4 c protein powder (I used Cytomax from Costco) to significantly up the protein count and it still is delish!

Pretty good substitute for regular cheesecake, with the added benefit of protein! I added a little low sugar strawberry jam to the top of the cheesecake as well as some Cool Whip. Aside for the gritty texture that the cottage cheese inevitably adds, this is excellent!

This is a great idea and a pretty good "cheesecake".I used stevia and agave nectar for sweetening and used 1/4 c ff sour cream and 1/4 c ff plain yogurt.The lemon was very nice but I think I may use a little less potein powder next time as that is definately the dominant flavor.I baked it for 30 min. at which time the edges were puffed and browned and the center was set.I'm looking forward to making this again.Thank you!
